Win a 9-disc set of The Beat reissues

The Beat / Win a set of deluxe reissues

Sorry this competition has now closed. Yossi Barak was the winner! Congratulations!

Another great competition from SuperDeluxeEdition!

We like to think we run the best competitions of any music blog. In recent weeks we have given away a Paul Simon Graceland Super Deluxe box set, a signed World Party Arkeology 5CD set and all four of the recent Everything But The Girl reissues, AND there is still four days left to win a SIGNED Swing Out Sister LP (see our Facebook page for details).

TODAY we would like to offer you the chance to win a set of The Beat‘s three albums in 2CD+DVD deluxe editions – we think they are great and our review can be found here.

Edsel Records have kindly provided us with a brand new sealed SET of these fine reissues to give away to one lucky fan of SuperDeluxeEdition. In total the bundle features six CDs with 96 audio tracks including remixes, B-sides, and radio sessions along with three DVDs featuring Top Of The Pops performances, live performances and more.

To enter this competition simply leave a friendly comment below and pay a visit to Edsel’s Facebook page and give them a ‘like’!

One winner will be randomly picked on Friday 20th July. Good luck!

  2. Lee says:

    these reissues have been a long time coming…the first one especially is a classic. i’ve never owned them on cd before, its time i did!

  3. Raul Regalado says:

    Great reissues!

  4. Darrell says:

    Awesome set!

  5. Eric says:

    Can’t wait to hear these!

  6. Vils says:

    This is the way all reissues should be done. I dug out my 1996 compilation – it sounds good, but these will sound even better!
    Good to see that an overlooked band (due to splitting up acrimoniously) gets the reissue treatment.
    Next reissues will be Fine Young Cannibals and General Public!

  7. Ross Raihala says:

    I am loving what Edsel’s been doing as of late. My credit card, on the other hand …

  8. Uffe S says:

    An excellent reissue!

  9. Tom Gardner says:

    Great offer from an always interesting site.

  10. Jeremy Bromley says:

    Oooh they’ve got The Beat :)

  11. Steven Berg says:

    I loved The Beat then, and I love The Beat now.

  12. Rob C says:

    Love it! And The Beat are touring Australia for the very first time in August – Dave Wakeling will be playing the hits of The Beat & General Public!

    Hope I can win this…this is how reissues should happen!

  13. Brian hack says:

    Awesome! It’s about time. Thank You Edsel, again.

  14. Mark Miller says:

    The Edsel sets are superior to the Shout Factory versions in packaging and content.

  15. Paul Gilronan says:

    Wow! Would love to win this!

  16. Jason Handy says:

    The Beat Complete…yes!!

  17. Michelle Cruz says:

    This box set is the ultimate, because it has all of their works in it, don’t have to look elsewhere it literally a ” complete box set”

  18. rob says:

    Hands off their mine!

  19. Adrian Graham says:

    Great band, wanna win it :o))

  20. Lazlo Nibble says:

    I gave Special Beat Service a serious sit-down listen the other day and I think it finally clicked for me as a full album, end to end. Always loved the singles, but this the the first time it felt like a cohesive whole. So the timing on these reissues is pretty good, ’cause I’m definitely in the mood for some immersion!

  21. Da'Ron Brown says:

    i would love to win these

  22. Paul says:

    The folks at Edsel do great deluxe reissues. Love the JAMC series.

  23. Michael Graff says:


  24. Jane says:

    I confess, yes I love The Beat and Edsel records! Such a fantastic package!

  25. Kenny says:

    As an original 2-tone boy … I deserve them!!

  26. tim says:

    You should make me the prize winner because I have a huge collection of 80′ music….but no Beat. I know, I know, turn in my 80’s cred NOW. I was always more of a Specials & Madness kinda guy. Hit me with the set and show me why I am wrong.

  27. I’d really like to win this one, wow

  28. Paul.Bamforf says:

    Looks like a great set of reissues!

  29. John says:

    Was just reading about these and came to the realization that there are few bands that have recorded a song as perfect as “Save it for Later.” It will be nice if these reissues bring some much-deserved light to this band.

  30. ray says:

    In for this!

  31. Steve Wilcox says:

    The band’s official output might have been only three albums — but what a terrific three albums. And the last track of their last album — Ackee 1-2-3 — has a special place in my heart, as it pulled me out of a deep, dark depression many years ago. It’s fantastic to see them given such special treatment.

  32. Joe Maryon says:

    This is superb. I think this sort of package is the way forward

  33. Alex Sepiol says:

    Amazing contest! Wish me luck…

  34. the best reissue of 2012!

  43. Hampton says:

    saw them at red rocks, spring of ’83, with bowwowow and (a then unknown) rem warming up. one of the best shows i ever saw!

  44. Mark Lavallee says:

    Nice. Please let it be me! These look wonderful and sadly I just can’t afford them right now!

  45. raffaele says:

    that’s the best reissue package of the year!

  46. Don says:

    Excellent! I already “liked” Edsel for a previous contest (and because they’re very “like”-worthy, of course), so hopefully that will apply here.

  47. Lee says:

    Love Edsel! Love these releases!

  48. TJ Jelsema says:

    Would love to win these. The Beat was one of the first bands I saw in person.

  49. Steven says:

    Enter me please. Is there any store similar to Suede/The London Suede as to why they went by The English Beat in the U.S. – anyone know??

  50. Robb Wolf says:

    Count me in please!

  51. Tyronne Mayadunne says:

    A very fun contest and thank you for offering these – would love to be included in the draw

  53. lemer says:

    I love The Beat! I’ve been a fan since I first heard Special Beat Service. I saw Dave Wakling’s English Beat two years ago and he’s still quite good. These Special Editions are chocked full of extras too!!! Amazing and available at Amazon for a mere £9.99 each! I would rather win it though. Thanks!

  54. B Williams says:

    Hopefully this is my time!

  61. Marco89 says:

    Always unlucky, but I try again :)
    Prizes are always wonderful

  62. Barry Grayshon says:

    Great set of CD’s there. I was only listening to The Beat the other day. Reminiscing when I was about 11, and I had my over sized parka, when I was into The Specials, Madness, The Selecter, The Beat etc. Playing Stand Down Margaret full blast thinking I was really political. Lol.

  63. Stuart P says:

    Great re-issues – love the site, too!
